Job 12:8-18 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
8 or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. 9 Which of all these does not know1 that the hand of the LORD has done this?2 10 In his hand is the life3 of every creature and the breath of all mankind.4 11 Does not the ear test words as the tongue tastes food?5 12 Is not wisdom found among the aged?6 Does not long life bring understanding?7 13 "To God belong wisdom8 and power;9 counsel and understanding are his.10 14 What he tears down11 cannot be rebuilt;12 the man he imprisons cannot be released.13 15 If he holds back the waters,14 there is drought;15 if he lets them loose, they devastate the land.16 16 To him belong strength and victory;17 both deceived and deceiver are his.18 17 He leads counselors away stripped19 and makes fools of judges.20 18 He takes off the shackles21 put on by kings and ties a loinclotha around their waist.22
